39 Of The Best ’80s Movies To Binge Right Now

The 1980s have so many movies worth watching (or re-watching)…

The 1980s was wicked – and the movies released then are still some of the best-loved of all time.

There are the absolute classics that have added lines to our vernacular, like “If it bleeds, we can kill it”, “ET phone home” and “No-one puts baby in the corner” to the cringiest 80’s silliness, and everything in between.

So put on some fluoro lycra and sweat bands, plump up the perm, grab yourself a TAB and press play on the VCR because this decade was made to be binged.

Stand By Me

Straight out the gate with a cracker of a film.

This is a classic coming of age story from the pen of Stephen King, brought to life in a moving and relatable way.

It’s also some of the earliest work from stars like Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Kiefer Sutherland.

The Goonies

A lot of groups of boys did a lot of adventuring in the movies of this decade…this is a Spielberg style treasure hunt that’s worth a look.


The iconic, “if it bleeds, we can kill it” come from this Arnie action adventure from 1987. Classic commandos Vs aliens. Classic Arnie.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

Early in the 80s we feel in love with a shipwrecked alien that just wanted to talk to his family. “E.T. phone home?”

This is sweet, sad and so worth watching again and again.

Maybe Spielberg’s best work…
